    Where can I meet Mushu and Maleficent at WDW?

    Hi Scott, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My family loves meeting Walt Disney World characters! You never know where the conversation will lead, and we've had some great laughs and warm hugs from our favorites.

    I like your taste, Scott – Mushu has to be one of the funniest sidekicks in the history of Disney movies, and Maleficent is, hands-down, the best villain. My son adores her, so I always have my Minnie ears to the ground for news on where we might find her.

    As of right now, these characters are not meeting Guests at Walt Disney World Resort. Mushu must have been sent on a mission by Mulan’s ancestors, and I think Maleficent is keeping a low profile and avoiding both Aurora’s Guards and Sorcerer Mickey. Both characters have appeared at events in the past several years, so my advice is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news of new character experiences.

    Did you know you can search for characters in real-time using the My Disney Experience mobile app? From the top menu, select "Characters," and then either navigate the map to see characters in all the theme parks, or select "Show List" from the top right to see an alphabetical listing of who's available. You also never know who you might find out and about around the parks – we always get so excited when we see somebody rare!

    Speaking of new character experiences, there are so many new meet and greet experiences all around Walt Disney World Resort. It's a great time to visit Mickey and Minnie, as they're celebrating 90 yEARs of magic! Meet them in their party outfits, or some of their friends who've come for the party.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
